800109 at Prestonpans800109 at PrestonpansLNER Azuma 800109 passes through Prestonpans with 5Q44 14.48 Edinburgh Waverley - Newcastle driver training run 8.7.19 During week beginning 8th July, one of LNER's new class 800 Azuma trains has been seen out on Driver Training between Newcastle and Edinburgh Waverley.

The 9 coach set, has the look of the German ICE sets and the smart livery of Red and White really suits the sets, however how long they remain in pristine condition, especially the large areas of white, is anyones guess!

They are expected to begin to enter service between Kings Cross and Edinburgh next month, although they have already started to see service on the Leeds and Skipton lines.

The down side to their introduction and the eventual introduction of the class 801 sets will be the withdrawal of the LNER HST and Class 91 sets.
